The games are taking place this weekend. It's being aired semi-live online on espn3. There's been some exciting competition. The whole thing started wednesday with a mini triathlon at Camp Pendelton but it was in steep, rough terrain. The bikes were only one gear, the 11k run was in the mountains in ultra-marathon style terrain, etc. then they did the Marine obstacle course shortly after the triathlon.

The arena WODs look easy on paper but brutal on the screen. There's been great competition thus far. The women have really impressed me. One of them Squat Cleaned 235 in the Clean ladder event. I think Rich Froning got 345. Pretty good lifts for people who don't do it exclusively. Froning has a commanding lead, but the women's side has been pretty close.

Anyway. The replays are available too. Go check 'em out.

I watched quite a bit of the live stream, looked like a well run and very competitive event.
